10 steps to understanding your interviewer
Research their history
To find out where someone is coming from, you have to know where they’ve been. An interviewer’s own work experience and areas of expertise will give you clues about what they’re interested in and what they know about.
This will help prepare you for the kinds of question they’re going to ask and the type of answers they’ll relate to. Go to their LinkedIn profile to check out their work history and search their name online to see what they’re known for and what they’ve done recently.
See if you have any mutual connections on LinkedIn and ask these individuals how they know the person.
